build 3000 settler homes in eastern jerusalem and the west bank. also plans to accelerate construction in the area known as e1. that would further isolate palestinians in east jerusalem from the rest of the west bank, and create another obstacle to hopes for a palestinian state with jerusalem as its capital. numerous european nations have criticized israel's plans. eu foreign ministers will discuss the bloc's reaction at a meeting next week. >> we cross over to our correspondent in jerusalem. should binyamin netanyahu be worried about this diplomatic outrage? >> we do not see much of worrying here. the israeli government does not seem impressed by the diplomatic pressure from the eu and from the u.s. the reaction so far was that there would be no backtracking. according to an official from the prime minister's office, he said there would be no change in the decision that was made. israel argues that they have the right to respond to the move by the palestinians last week at the un. it is quite an unprecedented move for the u.k. and other european states to some and israeli ambassadors

bloodshed. the obvious reason we want to go back is to find out how the west bank, gaza, jerusalem, principally but also the golan heights came into possession of israel. that happened in june 1967. the war was a pivotal event for many profound reasons. for example, the six-day war really spelt a death nell for the movement of arab nationalism which was a secular movement in its most sublime form under gamal abdul nasser of egypt. that war was debunked in 1967. it opened the door to the entry of a new ideology into the middle east. that was an islamic ideology. that has had profound ramifications for everybody, both in the middle east and in the united states as well. the six-day war also ended the period when the arab-israeli conflict was a state to state conflict, a conflict between israel and jordan, israel and syria and israel and egypt. this became a new conflict that emerged, one between israel and the palestinians. before 1967, you really didn't hear about the palestinians. it's not by accident a year after the war ended in 1968, the p.l.o., under yasser arafat, emerges as t

israeli plan for a housing development in eastern jerusalem. it's a settlement that's going to make the creation of a viable contiguous palestinian state pretty much impossible. let's show you why. the proposed construction would separate the west bank cities of bethlehem and ramallah from jerusalem. essentially cut the west bank in two. the area israel wants to develop is known as e-1. that stands for very simply east one, east of jerusalem, and it would connect the large israeli settlement town of maiale adumim. they have summoned israel's ambassadors to this country to condemn this plan. others also speaking out, including germany. a senior israeli government official says prime minister benjamin netanyahu has signed off only on planning and zoning for future construction on e-1, but the bulldozers have been there tearing up the ground yesterday. now, the palestinians, of course, see this as the ultimate threat to peace, and certainly a two-state solution. the chief negotiator says nblg e-1 would destroy the two-state solution, establishing east jerusalem as the capital of palestine

explosion or something like that. that just simply isn't the case, at least in jerusalem. i think the one place that it is the case unfortunately is in the area of gaza where the rockets are from time to time bombarding the civilian population and people are running into bomb shelters. most of israel is very peaceful, and usually peaceful. i went on a little drive just before i went over there to the north to the lebanon border and i was struck by the placid surroundings of the country. i thought about it even then how it would be hard to explain to people the place. we went to see it bird sanctuary, the migrating birds many of them go through israel on their way to africa so there are masses of cranes and pelicans in all sorts of birds. it's a whole surrounding, the whole country is very peaceful. my garden is very peaceful. it's not to say that things don't blow up, they do but it's not a frightening place and is certainly not a place where i have felt -- i have never been afraid. i've been cautious. i've never really been afraid there. that is one thing and i guess another one is a
